fifteen years ago an impressive gray stone structure started to
rise skyward on a rocky peninsula known as Peg Point, about four
miles east of Portland's parish capitol, Port Antonio. As the incongruous
building emerged it took on the shape and size of a medieval castle,
which quickly became the subject of legends, rumors and tall tales.
Its unique architecture also led to many flattering comments on
it's artistic beauty.
Castle's resilience against destructive forces has made it legend.
It is the only structure on the coastline to be hit by a hurricane
with forty-foot tidal waves, to be blown up in front of hundreds
of witnesses and to be struck by lightning and still remain standing.

Century Fox for permission to use the unfinished Castle for an action
movie starring William "Cannon" Conrad and Eddie Albert. The gray
concrete structure was leased to the movie company.
was some panic in Port Antonio when Word got around that the Trident
Castle was to be wired with explosives and blown up in the final
scene of the movie. The huge crowds that gathered to watch the catastrophe
were not disappointed. At about midnight, a massive blast (courtesy
of Hollywood's pyrotechnicians) ignited the hallways and enveloped
the Castle in a dramatic orange mushroom cloud that could be seen
for miles around. In the meantime, word went around that the Castle
had indeed been blown into oblivion. There was great surprise when
the sun rose the next morning to reveal the building intact except
for a few charred patches on the walls.
what is the real story of how the Trident Castle came to grace the
Portland, Jamaica coastline? According to the owner, although the
original plans called for a private three-bedroom house, the immensity
of the Castle project presented the ideal opportunity to unleash
his bubbling energy into an ultimate monument that would reflect
some of Jamaica's heritage in a unique landmark for the Portland
this in mind, he commissioned Italian sculptor, Georgio Ferrari
to design traditional decorations for both the interior and exterior
of the Castle. The main hall reflects Jamaica's British heritage.
It is fashioned on the concept of Britains Clandon Park that was
designed by a Venetian architect in 1730. Wrought-iron torches light
this main hall with its epic 47-foot ceiling and black-and -white
the left of the hall is the dinning room whose walls and ceilings
are embellished with white plaster friezes of birds, fruits and
flowers indigenous to Jamaica. Urns and statues, a 14-foot 19th
century Chippendale mirror with matching marble table and a huge
mahogany dining table under a massive crystal chandelier complete
the picture of regal grandeur.
Master Bedroom on the upper floor is 32 feet by 28 feet with a 17-foot
high ceiling and a sea front balcony that runs the full length of
the room. The bedrooms are decorated with floor to ceiling curtains
at the windows and the mahogany four-poster beds are draped with
lavish lace canopies and spreads, each consisting of more than 120
yards of French lace.

balls and weddings. Candlelit concerts, featuring traditional chamber
music, have taken place in the main hall and superb jazz concerts
have contributed yet another musical dimension to the Castle's winter
